Newquay Events Diary

The Newquay Events Diary below is an eclectic mix of events in Newquay that might appeal to you whether you’re a resident or a holidaymaker, or visiting your second home. Newquay Cornwall

As with all things, it’s biased – biased towards events I know are occurring, events I see posted round town – and events that are well-known. But then I need to remember to add them once I’ve found them. If I see a poster strapped to a lamp-post there’s a chance I will remember, but I don’t always 🙂

If I think an event is exceedingly dull, or I just take a personal dislike to it, it won’t be included 🙂
We’re not biased here, but sometimes things have to be dropped. The aim is to have a bit of a mix though, across all dates… but this isn’t always possible.

    Newquay New Years Eve Fireworks 2017, Newquay

    Every year at midnight there’s a fireworks display at the end of Newquay Harbour to welcome in the new year.

    Newquay New Year’s Eve Fireworks Display 2017/2018. Newquay Fireworks 2017

    This free firework display starts in the minutes just after midnight.

    Wherever you are in town, as the bells are ringing in the New Year, make a dash next to the Harbour to watch them!

    Get as close as you can, for the best effect, but you can also watch the fireworks from further afield:

    Visible from Watergate Bay, Porth, Tolcarne, Great Western and Towan Beach.
    Visible from Barrowfields and Killacourt.
    From any vantage point, if you can see the sea entrance to Newquay Harbour you’ll be able to see the fireworks.
